    Supreme Court to consider plea against new ECI appointments on March 15 | Action Punjab

    ACTION PUNJAB NEWS Desk: The Supreme Court has scheduled a hearing for March 15 regarding a petition filed by the Association of Democratic Reforms (ADR) seeking to halt fresh appointments to the Election Commission of India (ECI) under recent legislation.

    This decision comes in the wake of two vacancies emerging within the three-member poll panel due to the retirement of Anup Chandra Pandey in February and the sudden resignation of Arun Goel.

    In response, a high-powered committee led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to convene this week to finalize the appointment of the vacant election commissioner. The committee’s composition includes a Union minister and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, the Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha.

    The ADR’s plea raises concerns about the appointment process under the new law, prompting the Supreme Court’s intervention.
